    You said economy. That, at least in my book, is economy.

    Anyhow, I've been riding their SS 29er for almost two years now. This one comes with much better brakes, which was the first thing I upgraded - actually made my total cost for the bike about what this one is. I lived with that for about a year before I pulled the trigger on a nice wheel set. If you're looking for a budget SS build, odds are it's your first one, and you really want to try it out, so if you do this you can't really go wrong. It's easy, it's well known, and if you don't like it, you can convert it to geared or sell it as is. If you do like it, it's a good platform to upgrade until you either need to replace the frame (like me) or just want something different, and then you can pull most of you upgrades. But that's the very essence of a budget SS build.
